Great looking castle and lovely location in the heart of historic town of Trencin. Staff offered us help but disappeared and we had to wait for a bit more. Will recommend though!

Very big interesting castle but very boring tour, because inside there are only naked walls with some paintings on them. It is enough to visit the court and the tower.
The castles in Slovakia are stunning. These castles are compulsory viewing or should be wether your a history buff or just a man who still has that little boy inside him. Grab your sword and shield and go 😁
